The recent Fiesta failed again on many levels. Swap meet booths (mattresses, knives, cars, time share, sheets, etc.) were everywhere, despite our residents' desire to see the Fiesta focus on arts and crafts. In addition, there was minimal involvement as usual from local groups (Boy & Girl Scouts, school organizations, church organizations, local non-profits, etc.). The Chamber had the audacity to charge local organizations such as Hermosa 5-0 $750 for a booth. Note that the Chamber apparently and ironically gets free space in the city's community center. Many of the local businesses do not do well during Fiesta weekends. It is obvious that the Chamber of Commerce will not make substantial changes. In addition, I believe a majority of Hermosa residents would like to have at most only one Fiesta a year. In addition, if even one Fiesta is allowed to continue, the city should require specific guidelines to satisfy shortcomings detailed above.
